Navus is fortunate to work in an industry where we get to do something different every single day. Our projects have a lot of moving parts that all need to synchronize seamlessly, giving our team the opportunity to work with a variety of exciting, cutting-edge technologies. Between constant advances in robotics and a perpetual desire to build faster, safer, and more efficient systems, we never have to worry about work becoming monotonous.
Meet Aaron H.: Electrical Designer
Aaron H. has been with us for almost six years. While he works as an electrical designer, he likes to joke that he’s a “master of all trades,” which isn’t too far from the truth.
Variety That Inspires
Navus: Describe what you do in your role at Navus.
Aaron: I do a lot of the PLC programming for the new machines. I also do some of the electrical design depending on the workload. I usually end up doing more of the programming than the design work.
Navus: How did you end up in this career, and ultimately at Navus?
Aaron: I ended up in this career because it’s always interesting and there’s always something different. It’s ever-changing, unlike some other monotonous, repetitive careers. I’m always getting to work with new equipment and make something exciting happen.
I joined Navus after working for another machine builder. They closed their doors one day, and I knew I wanted to continue doing that kind of work. I applied to Navus and I’ve been a part of the team ever since!
Navus: What’s your favorite part about the role that you play at Navus?
Aaron: I enjoy getting to work with all the new technology. I get to see how everything comes together as a whole, from the beginning of the process, until we deliver the finished machine.
Navus: What is your favorite part about working for Navus as a company in general?
Aaron: I love getting to be a part of bringing a concept to life. To actually make it work the way it was intended and dreamed up. It’s a lot of fun! Especially when a client brings us something to build that’s never been done before. We create a lot of new processes for our clients at Navus!
Exceeding Expectations Everyday
Navus: Describe some of the ways you’ve seen the team at Navus work together to solve challenges in the past.
Aaron: Like most teams, we have our moments where we don’t always agree. But overall I would say that’s rare. We always come together, brainstorm, and figure out a solution to the challenges we face.
We all work together well. Overall, we’re a good team who can ask each other for ideas and bounce things off of each other. As a group effort, it makes everything come together, and our projects are successful because of it in the end.
Navus: What’s been your favorite project that you’ve worked on at Navus?
Aaron: I would have to say my favorite was a trim and expand cell we did for a client. It turned out really well and worked far more superior to a previous rendition that another automation company had created. It’s always great when we can not only meet a client’s expectations, but exceed them and set a new standard in the industry. That project was a lot of fun!
Navus: What do you hope for the future of Navus as you grow?
Aaron: I hope it explodes, but in a good way of course. We grow year over year, and I hope that continues. I would love to see us get to ten times the size we are now. The bigger we are, the more we get to build new and advanced machinery, and stay on the cutting-edge of automation technology.
Navus: What kind of projects would you like to work on in the future, or do more of?
Aaron: I like working on the higher speed lines. I always think that it’s neat to get everything done in split seconds. When you’ve worked in the industry as long as I have, you tend to know when something is possible or not. The exciting part is accomplishing something faster than it’s been done before.
